Bus card UTL

Well I had a tool that broke and had to replace it. I put it on my Amex revolver and now at 70% utl. Not sure if it's fine to pay it over 3 months? I was going to finance it but didn't want another inq

Business UTL has no effect on personal scores or business scoring as long as it's not a CAP1 card they report to personal CR's and thus can effect UTL and scores

+1

 

Bus Utility has no bearing on your personal credit score.  And, regarding Amex, I've found they couldn't care less about business utility.  This year, I've routinely been at 200% of CL on some of our business cards.  Of course, you'd have to treat whatever exceeds the limit as a charge card balance, but otherwise no AA, charge declines, or over the limit fees.
